Adobe Summit 2023 [19th to 23rd March, Las Vegas and Virtual] | Complete AEM Session & Lab list

Ability to download PDF with annotations annotated in the Document Cloud PDF viewer


Level 1


Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Using the features provided by Document Cloud PDF Viewer as outlined in this link: we can annotate on PDFs (and other document formats converted to PDF).

However, the annotations can only be viewed by someone who has access to AEM. In the case that someone who doesn't have access to AEM needs to get a summary of the annotations to a particular document, it is currently not possible to download the annotated PDF as displayed by the Document Cloud PDF Viewer. There is no download/print/export button available, and even the "Print" button on the main toolbar for an asset won't print the pdf in full (that one only prints the first page rendition of the asset).

Use-case: Users without access to AEM needs to get a copy of the asset (PDF or converted to PDF) with the annotations that was added in AEM.
Current/Experienced Behavior: Cannot download the PDF with annotations.
Improved/Expected Behavior: Provide or enable a "Download" / "Print" / "Export" function in order to get a copy of the PDF with the annotations
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): AEM Cloud, latest version
Customer-name/Organization name: King Power
